Hampton Roads Oyster Gardening Seminars

New Gardeners

At the event, you will pick up your spat-on-shell (baby oysters set on recycled shells) and the 18" x 9" cages and other supplies needed to grow them. We require a $25 fee for this kit to offset program costs.

Fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask while attending a CBF event. We recommend that unvaccinated people continue to wear a mask and practice physical distancing whenever possible.

NEW GARDENERS: Please read our New Gardeners web page before you register for a seminar.

Registration is open. See locations, dates, times, and registration links below.

CBF is proud to once again partner with Lynnhaven River NOW and the Elizabeth River Project to help expand our oyster gardening program. The oyster gardening event in Virginia Beach is co-hosted by Lynnhaven River NOW. The Oyster Gardening event in Norfolk for RiverStar Homes and RiverStar businesses is co-hosted by the Elizabeth River Project. The oyster gardening event in Portsmouth is made possible by generous funding from the Beazley Foundation.
